GAA Partners with National Fish & Seafood, SFP to Launch Small Farm Pilot Project
In collaboration with the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) and Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP), National Fish & Seafood in late July announced that is launching a project to bring small-scale shrimp farmers closer to Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification.
With the support of GAA, National Fish & Seafood will pilot the first four groups of shrimp farmers in Vietnam, Indonesia and India. These four groups will be tapped to launch the first Aquaculture Improvement Projects (AIPs) through SFP to document improvements in practices being made at the farm and zonal levels.
“We are very excited with this collaboration. It is great to see the whole supply chain working together to get the job done and deliver meaningful change on the ground, while delivering more two-star BAP shrimp to the marketplace,” said Peter Redmond, BAP’s VP of market development.
National Fish & Seafood is a co-host of GAA’s GOAL 2014 conference in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, from Oct. 7 to 10.
